"Good riddance! (and I know just who should replace him....) #AStarForCarrie," Hamill tweeted. He links to a 2018 article that reveals the West Hollywood City Council voted for removal of Trump's star, which he received in 2007 for his work as producer of the Miss Universe pageant.
Hamill's hashtag #AStarForCarrie is currently trending with fans posting their own pleas for Fisher to get her own star.
"How does Carrie Fisher NOT already have a star on the HWOF?" fan Bill Sienkiewicz tweeted.
"Carrie Fisher helped MAKE STARS FAMOUS. Give her a star, ASAP," Fan Brian Lynch tweeted.
